Happy Friday! So glad for the weekend. It’s a long weekend here in Canada but since I’m working and DH is on call, it’s not really a celebration for us.
It does mean that we are celebrating a new challenge at Creative Corner Challenges this week. Our challenge for you~ Inspired by a Song~. This is one of my favorite challenges…..I chose a song that is also one of my favorite movies as well PRETTY IN PINK
I’m such a sucker for 80′s flicks!
Here is the card that I created for the challenge this week.
DP-stash (no idea who it is by as I’ve been trying to use up stray pieces)
Image: our wonderful sponsor Bugaboo!
Ink & Stickles: Tim Holtz (both are spun sugar)
Ribbon: from my stash

I am really late posting this. As I mentioned before I’ve been pretty busy with work and a sick family to deal with.
Our challenge at Creative Corner Challenges is to create a project with the theme “things with wings”
We are being sponsored this whole month by Bugaboo Stamps who is one of my personal favorites!
Here is my card this week, using one of their ever cute stamps
I colored the image with copics and added a little glitter to her wings. The DP is from Basic Grey’s Ambrosia 6×6 paper pack just a scrap piece that was in the package. I added some pearls, a button and twine from my stash. I used some Tim Holtz distress inks to dress it up a bit. I hope you enjoy it and be sure to stop by the blog to see the other DT creations and also enter this week’s challenge.

Hi Everyone! Another quick post today for our challenge at Creative Corner Challenges.
It’s been so busy with work and my son ill again (an infection in his finger this time and some visits to the doctor and chiropracter to help with a gait issue) that it’s amazing I’ve had time to craft this week!
Our challenge is Clean and Simple also known as CAS. This is a challenge to use less and less embellishments and papers on your project. The least amount the better. This is always a challenge for me because I love to embellish. However, I am thrilled with how this card turned out. I used a sketch in the March/April issue of Papercrafts magazine and its just a fabulous one.
I just used a couple of scraps of paper in my basket and the butterflies were sent to me in a swap. They were regular corrugated cardboard and I misted them with my smooch spritzes! The pearls are from my stash and the sentiment is K Andrew Designs
I hope you like it. Please stop by the blog to see the other DT creations and also to join in on the challenge this week.
Happy Crafting and Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
That unfortunately does not seem to be something that we are going to have here in Calgary today. It’s still a bit cloudy and cool today. The last vestiges of winter are still lingering around. I wish they would just go already.
Today’s challenge at Use it Tuesday is All About Spring. It’s time to break out the flowers, the bright colors, the sunshine, all the good stuff. As always you need to use up some of your stash so make sure you let us know in your post what you used.
I finally have used up all of the Lil Sprout collection by Crate Paper so here is my final project. The stamp set is one from my stash that I don’t use enough by My Favorite Things. It comes with its own sentiment as well. I just used my spellbinders and inked it up with some Tim Holtz ink. The bling is from my stash as well. I hope you like it.
Please stop by the blog to enter this week’s challenge and to see all the rest of the great DT projects we have for you this week.

It’s Friday! Oh thank heaven! It has been what seems like a long week for me. I’ve not been able to get into my craft space much this week with work being so busy.
I do however, have a new card for you for our challenge this week at Creative Corner Challenges. My theme this week is layers. The more the better, but at least 2 layers are needed to qualify for this week’s mystery prize. I’m not announcing it until I pick the winner next week but it’s a good one.
Here’s my fun card for you this week. Again I was using up my scraps from my Lil Sprout collection by Crate Paper. I am happy to announce that I have one more project to show you next week and then it is finally finished! Yay! That only took me 4 years to go through! I thought I was doing so well finishing up a paper pack finally and then I find out today that I won 4 paper packs by Basic Grey…**sigh** I can’t win for losing but I’m not really complaining
The image was in my image bucket so it came from a swap ages ago. I just colored it with my copics. As I said the DP was in my stash and it is the scraps of the scraps of the Crate Paper Lil Sprout collection. The sentiment is an old one from my stash. It was fun to do a square card for a change. I actually made this one for a swap on Swap-bot as well which has a square card theme. I hope you like it. Don’t forget to stop by the blog and check out the rest of the DT inspiration pics for you this week and enter to win my mystery prize.

Yay for Tuesday! It’s our new challenge at Use It Tuesday this week. Our theme this week is All About Christmas/Hanukkah. Create a project using some stash items with this theme and upload it to our blog! We would love to see what you create.
Here is my card for you. I got the idea from a Create magazine from last year I believe. I loved the look of it and knew I wanted to try it.
I didn’t use any DP this time around, just some red, green and white cardstock. The sentiment is from my stash…Hero Arts. The tree was created using a Making Memories Twinkle bauble set from last year and some button and yarn from my stash. A really simple card and I hope you like it. Don’t forget to stop by the blog and see what the rest of the DT has created for you.

Hello everyone! Welcome to today’s installment of the Digihaven challenge. We have a fun new Halloween challenge for you.
For this challenge you need to use any halloween image that is a) free and b) is free for the duration of the challenge which in this case is ending November 1st. You can find all the details under the challenge tab on the blog!
Here is the fun card I created for you this week.
I just thought these spiders were so cute and you can find them here~ The DP are just some scraps that I had from other Halloween projects and I cut out the spiders with my spellbinders and then inked them with the Tim Holtz Seedless Preserves ink. The DP I inked with some Rusty Hinge. The letters are from my stash as is the little star. I hope you like it and don’t forget to stop by the blog and check out the other inspiration pieces for you this week and to enter this fun new challenge.
I am off to the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival for Friday and Saturday for 2 days of fun cropping and I will have all the great details and maybe even some pictures on Sunday! See you then!
Yay! Tuesday! We have a brand new challenge for you on the Use It Tuesday blog! It’s so fun and yet hard at the same time…the fun part…USE YOUR SCRAPS…the hard part….NARROWING IT DOWN! This was really hard for me, so I asked the girls on the DT to help me out by picking a color of scraps to work with because I just have so many…their choice was PURPLE!
And Voila! Here is my purple card for you!
So I haven’t the foggiest clue where any of that purple DP came from. It has been in my stash box for so long, it’s not even funny! The image came from my image box, again, it has been sitting in there forever and was probably part of some swap that I did. I cut the butterflies out using an old Cuttlebug diecut that I forgot I even had. I am not even sure I’ve ever used it! The fibres are from CTMH and I think I bought them when I first started scrapbooking several years ago. It was my first foray into ribbon…now I’m just a ribbon whore and it has become out of control! The sentiment is an old rub on that I found in a box. It’s part of a bunch of birthday rub ons and I’m hoping to create more cards with them. Bling is from my stash as are the border punch and Spellbinder. I hope you like this one and make sure you stop by the blog and enter this week’s challenge. Everyone has some kind of scraps. Your card doesn’t even have to be fancy…some white space and a few pieces of patterned paper and you are done! Challenge yourself to scrap a certain color like I did, or just close your eyes and pick a piece of paper out and create around it..I’ve been known to do that too.
Entered into these challenges:
cupcake craft challenges: fairytales ( she reminds me of Tinkerbell from Peter Pan)
Paper Playtime: punches and a sentiment
whoopsie daisy challenge: things with wings
Challenges for Everybody: anything goes
the Squirrel and Fox: celebrate the occasion
Hello everyone! Welcome to Wednesday and this week’s sponsor spotlight for Lollipop Crafts.
This week Robyn’s Fetish is offering 5 images of choice to the lucky winner. The challenge this week is Baby Baby, so any baby creations.
The card I have for you however, is a Mother’s Day card. Using one of Robyn’s images I made this simple little card. The lighter DP is from my stash as are the ribbon and the pearls. (The flower DP I got as an extra with an order I placed with GingerSnapScraps). I have been reorganizing and found this big box full of paper that needs to be used up. The stamp I bought ages ago (like 2 or 3 years ago and am just using it now!) and is from My Sentiment’s Exactly.
Entered into the following challenges:
Repeat Impressions DCC425: Card for a Woman you Love

So here is our sketch…
and these are the two cards that I made
One for Halloween
This was made using the Halloween card kit that I received from my partner in a swap on the Club CK forum! She sent me tonz of stuff, which is great because I don’t have that much! LOL I decided to water color the image this time and then I added a bunch of stickles for flair~! Everything except the chipboard hat sticker came from the kit that Christy sent me.

Another simple card…the reindeer is from the Doodlecharms cricut cartridge. The DP is scrap and the ribbon and bling are from my stash. I decided to emboss the sentiment to make it stand out a bit more against the DP..again as I am making these for a craft fair, they can’t be too heavy in embellishments…
